Tim Vigil - the Mummy

2016.04.17 East Coast Comic Con, Seacaucus, NJ

Tim Vigil is best known for his work in the horror/adult genre.  His graphic novel Faust, co-created with David Quinn, was first published in 1987 through Rebel Studios and then by Avatar Press. Faust,  is a series that features strong violence and sexual situations, was developed into a film in 2001 by director Brian Yuzna as Faust: Love of the Damned..

The followup series Faust: Book of M was nominated for the 1999 Bram Stoker Award for Best Illustrated Narrative...

Vigil has also provided work for Grips (Silverwolf Comics), Caliber Presents (Cailber Comics), Zero Tolerance (First Comics), Champions of Hell (13 Flames Empire) and others..

I was a little hesitant to obtain a sketch from Vigil, due to the graphic and sexual nature of most of his work (it's not that I don't appreciate the art, but I have to bring this home and my wife might not approve!) I did approach Vigil with my request based on his background in horror.  His sketch for the above Mummy first day cover is exceptional. The detail he provided , especially in the left hand reaching out of the drawing, it's beautiful...
